Golden Dollar Flowers




You may remember my photo of an upended bee in one of these flowers. This time I have another visitor to share....a fruit wasp! I usually avoid close proximity to wasps, however I was just taking photos of the flowers when at that exact second, a wasp landed! Thankfully he left as quickly and uneventfully as he arrived. I thought it was just another bee until I had a close look at my camera screen! In the photo below you can just see the wasp entering view on the righthand side.







Another beautiful yellow shot to brighten the day!

Great capture - do those little insects sting - we have something very similar here in the UK and they never sting so I don't mind having the lens about 1" from them.

Thank you everyone. Yes these wasps do sting, although I haven't been stung by this variety (I don't remember seeing these before).
